Marinated Grilled Shrimp with Sweet Chili and Basil


  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 Cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Cup fresh diced tomatoes
  • 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoon white wine
  • 1 bunch fresh basil (about a 1/2 Cup)
  • 1/4 Cup sweet chili sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 lbs. fresh shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • skewers (soaked in water 1 hour)


1. Put all your ingredients except the shrimp into a food processor and pulse until well blended. Transfer the mixture to a food storage bag with the shrimp. Gently shake until the shrimp are well coated. Refrigerate for a half hour turning twice.

2. Preheat your grill to medium, oil the grates to prevent the shrimp from sticking. Put a few shrimp on each skewer, and cook for about 3 minutes.



  1. Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers?
    I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm a little lost
    on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like Wordpress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any tips? Thanks a lot!
